Today has been a very full and memorable day, not the least of which being our first trip to Sew Memorable in Dawsonville. Sabra and I went on a very impromptu trip with our quilting bee friends. We met for a 9:30 Chick-fil-a breakfast, and then loaded up with our friends, the Pattons, in our van. Sew Memorable is an amazing fabric store with a rustic, mountain feel. Our other friends, the Shamblins, met us while we were there. The proprietor, Jeanne, made us feel right at home and spent 3 hours helping the girls choose just the right fabric for their quilts. This will be Sabra’s first, and it is a mix of blues, pinks, yellows, and greens, with a hint of red and a bug theme (cute bugs, like ladybugs and butterflies) running throughout.
Let me say here that I feel that I have found a kindred spirit in Tammy, in spite of the fact that we have different mediums of expression: I tend to use the computer as a creative outlet, and she is a master of the lost arts – quilting, cross-stitching, crocheting, and the like. I think it will be interesting to see if we can teach each other a little of what we know. We had a great time today sharing stories and driving down the road listening to Rascal Flatts! Terri, you are awesome – thank you for taking our sewing machine to Alabama. It is now up and running and Sabra is sewing everything in sight.
This post is dedicated to Tammy and Terri, our quilting coaches. Thank you and we’ll see you Friday!
